Patrick Wong

Patrick’s hot formed sculptured glass figures were inspired by his interest in classical and primitive traditions of sculpture.

After graduating from Monash University with a Bachelor of Arts, Ceramic Design in 1992 Patrick went on to complete his Graduate Diploma Applied Arts in 2002. In  2001 he was technical assistant for a  Martin Blank workshop which fuelled his passion for sculptured hot formed glass. Whilst working as  a glass blowing assistant for several Melbourne artists he developed  his own work hot forming solid glass  male and female torso’s. He has had many exhibitions both in Australia and the USA at SOFA Chicago with Kirra Galleries 2004 where his work was much admired. In 2011 he opened his own access studio and showroom in Melbourne where he continues to work on his collection and teach.

“My work is influenced by both classical and primitive traditions of sculpture. I am interested in the body as the external expression of an internal existence.”
